The Investigation: Chapter 3 of "Chikatilo"
[written by Marc]
- November 2000 -
Part I: The madmen-gang
Four years and fourteen murders later
Central militia sent out their best major.
Criticising the ineptitude of local police
Attributing slaughters to a sex-crazed killer.
A special task force was convoked
The Division of Especially Serious Crimes
Lead by an experienced forensic analyst.
The case known as Forest Strip Killings.
Believing the murderer was abnormal
Looking for crimes involving sex and violence
Searching through records of mental hospitals,
The task was long and arduous.
Samples of semen taken from the victims
Indicated the perpetrator has type AB blood.
Police picked up a man acting suspiciously,
Obviously retarded, he confessed the murders
Committed with his madmen-friends.
As the killings continued, the boys were released.
Part II: The man with the glasses
One year and fifteen new homicides later
Investigation failed to uncover any evidence.
Psychologists, pathologists were asked for advise.
To provide a profile of the slashing maniac.
Suffering from chronic sexual inadequacy,
Brutalising his victims for compensation.
Patrolling bus, tram and train stations,
A middle-aged man wearing thick glasses,
Paying particular attention to young girls.
Observed and approached by an inspector,
Finding the papers were in order,
Uneasy feeling this man's hiding something.
